sorry, meant to post in OP, but can't edit it :

Last week, the San Francisco suburb made active a smoking ban that officials say is the strictest in the country, prohibiting smoking cigarettes in your own home.

To be honest, I am not sure how I feel about this. Part of me says this makes sense, but part of me just cringes and I just shake my head. Living in my own home without a common wall, it doesn't affect me, but I do remember smoking in my dorm room in college, and my apartments which I considered my own domain.

As if there aren't other things that are more important. As long as we never inhale smoke (from tobacco), everything will be ok.

What about diesel exhaust fumes and that famous Los Angeles smog?
Just because I don't care, doesn't mean I don't understand.

I am wondering how they are going to enforce this law .
Will the LAPD or council officials come round to check whether some people are smoking or will they rely on informers ?
